Police suspect drugs part of gunfire at Houston apartment complex, 3 men found dead


HOUSTON — Houston police say drugs may have been involved in gunfire at an apartment complex where three men were found shot to death.

Police on Thursday searched for three men who were last seen fleeing in a car.

Sgt. Mark Holbrook says neighbors heard gunfire Wednesday night.

Investigators found one man dead in the parking lot. The bodies of the other two men were in a unit where one apparently lived.

Holbrook says two other men showed up at a hospital and were treated for gunshot wounds. Investigators are trying to determine whether those injuries are related to the deadly gunfire.
